  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • How & Why We Measure Suspended Solids

    In case you weren’t sure, Suspended Solids is simply a density measurement used to describe exactly how much waste sludge and particles are in the water, and is measured in milligrams per litre (mg/l), grams per litre (g/l) or percentage solid (%). 1000mg/l = 1g/l = 0.1%. It is used to calculate the amount of material, or load, in a wastewater or industrial system. Suspended Solids ...

  • Final effluent monitors protect wastewater treatment efficiency

    Southern Water operates 370 wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), many of which are unmanned for most of the time and most have numeric environmental permits, so a network of online monitors has been established to improve treatment and protect discharge compliance. This has involved the installation of final effluent monitors at over 300 sites in a programme that has lasted for more than ten ...


  • How & When We Measure Turbidity

    Turbidity, along with Suspended Solids, is a way of measuring the clarity of a body of water, and how many particles are affecting it. The difference is that while Suspended Solids describes the density of the materials in the water, Turbidity describes how those materials affect light passing ...

  • Phosphorus control protects surface waters

    Phosphorus is the decisive factor for excessive algae and plant growth in water bodies, that’s why quality standards require reductions in the amount of phosphorus released from wastewater treatment plants into rivers and lakes. In recent years, the outlet limit values have not only been reduced on national levels. Depending on the vulnerability of ecosystems, especially low target values ...
